Upcoming Event
Monday, January 8, 7:00 pm to 8:00 pm

This event has been rescheduled from Monday, January 8 to Thursday, January 18.

DETAILS

This study of police violence against black people looks closely at specific recent incidents, then broadens the scope to synthesize the various cases into a powerful look at a deeply systematized American racism. Citing the school-to-prison pipeline, the rise of mass incarceration, and other deliberate violations of black bodies, Hattery and Smith, professors at George Mason University and Wake Forest University, respectively, describe today’s culture as a prison-industrial complex. They argue that colorblind racism only maintains the status quo, and this powerful, passionate analysis brings these issues into the open where we can confront them and work for change.
